Axis Three, a provider of 3D surgical simulation tools for aesthetic consultations, has introduced a new XS-400 scanner, a turnkey system designed to address face, breast and body procedures.

Axis Three claimed that the the elegant XS-400, the only 4-Head 3D scanner on the market, captures anatomically-accurate, 3D images of a patient’s face or body, and serves as a vehicle to extend Axis Three’s simulation platform to an even broader range of cosmetic procedures.

The hardware and software package enables surgeons and their staff to show patients how they look post-surgery, using 3D simulation to enhance the aesthetic consultation experience.

Designed to support Axis Three’s current software modules and future development application roadmap, the XS-400 features Color Coded Triangulation (CCT), a patented capture technology is developed in conjunction with Siemens, that delivers the industry’s spatially aware 3D images, yielding highly precise images of a patient’s body with just one click of the mouse.

Combined with Axis Three’s Tissue Behavior Simulation (TBS) engine, the result is the robust system available for 3D simulations. The intuitive solution gives surgeons flexibility, allowing them to deliver the benefits of 3D simulation to patients considering a variety of aesthetic procedures.

Paul Moffett, co-founder and technical director of Axis Three, said: “Our team of 3D experts is constantly innovating as demand for preoperative simulations grows. We know surgeons need incredibly sophisticated technology that is simple and intuitive to use and this is exactly why we’re introducing the XS-400. With streamlined features, sleek aesthetics, and highly accurate image capture, the system complements the consultation process and brings a new dimension to the patient experience.”
